Niall de Búrca

as part of national Children's Book Festival 2014

Niall de Búrca returns to Clare with a roller coaster ride of tales for national Children's Book Festival 2014.

Renowned for his shows full of energy, wit and superb timing, Niall has performed in places as diverse as Los Angeles, Iran and the European Parliament in Brussels.  Raised in the West, Niall emigrated at a young age and lived for many years in New Zealand where he married into a large Maori family. Now back living in Ireland, this master of tales tours worldwide inspiring all with his traditional and original stories. To quote the Vienna Review of Books “His ability to evoke a wide range of emotions from his rapt audience enables him to bewitch people with his stories”. Not to be missed!

Bookings for this event will be made by Clare County Library directly.
